Longkang Fishing @ ORTO

Want to Bring Your Kids Out to try something different? This weekend, let them try their hands on Longkang Fishing @ ORTO!

Longkang (which actually means drain in Malay) fishing was a popular past-time eons ago, whereby kids will take plastic containers and nets and head to the drains to catch small fishes.

Let your LOs enjoy this experience in a safer condition! The Longkang Fishing venue at ORTO is a tiny pond about 20 - 30cm deep and is not slippery too!

For $12, you will receive a net and a tank. Simply fill the tank with water, pass the net to the LO and watch them gleefully chase after the fishes! 

Did I mention, it's $12 for unlimited hours! Tank, net, fishes all included!

A few words of caution: Adults are not allowed to fish (we were warned) and the fishes die quite quickly after we brought them home (we were down to just 5 after 2 weeks, from over 20). 

Check end of Intro Video for advice on how to keep the fishes alive longer...

You probably can't tell, but we were trying to take pictures of the fishes!
